Captain Everett was so good as to shew me the method of firing a Musket and instructed me as I loaded and fired the weapon. Great fun, but mind the black powder-- it does not readily wash off one's hand.
Twenty years ago, I got my black powder license, and ruined a perfectly good (17th century ) costume in the process!
Reading this makes me feel very nostalgic- It was so much fun to get up in the costume of another century and live in it for a weekend or so!
And as for that song......you could put it's name up. I'd probably recognise it anyway ;-) I wouldn't make you repeat all the words with the gestures. :-D
